Cheesy Potato Bacon Bites

There are few foods in this day and age, that are held to such a legendary status as that of bacon and potatoes. Endless internet memes edify the perfection that is the potato. Embellish it with bacon and you have a new classic to crave! Thus, I give you the Cheesy Bacon Potato Bites… 

Ingredients:

  • 2 baked potatoes 
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese 
  • Fresh bacon, chopped (or bacon bits) to taste 
  • 5-7 tablespoons of cream cheese (partially melted)
  • Olive oil 2-4 teaspoons 
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Procedure: 

  • Preheat oven to 350° F 
  • Start by cubing the baked potatoes. They should be chilled property, personally I find this to be a great recipe for when you have a couple of leftover baked potatoes in your fridge that you are looking to transform. 

  • Place potatoes onto a cookie sheet or stone. 
  • Drizzle in olive oil and mix thoroughly with hands so that oil covers the potatoes. 

  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake the potatoes for 10-15 minutes until almost golden.
  • In the meantime chop up your bacon and microwave your cream cheese to soften it. 
  • Take the potatoes out of the oven and set on a heat resistant surface.
  • Put dollops of cream cheese all over the potatoes while they are still hot!

  • Use a fork to mix it around somewhat. 
  • Then take the shredded cheese and sprinkle it all over the top of the potatoes.


  • Next, take your bacon and sprinkle it all over the surface of your potatoes!!! Like a wonderful first snow let your bacon form a layer over the cheese. 

  • Return the potatoes to the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Take out of the oven, let it cool and enjoy (having a heart attack).

I truly hope that you found this post to be delightful! I certainly enjoyed sampling my own handiwork at dinner, as did my family! I feel like this is an awesome recipe for the holidays or a weeknight that needs a little extra pizzaz.
